Welcome all new comers!
This course of Defense Against the Dark Arts is based on the Harry Potter world of witchcraft and wizardry. This curriculum created is based on what was used at Hogwarts. The point of this course is to let you people to learn about the wizardry world and what mythical beings were used in such an amazing book/movie series.
I, the professor, expect that you, the student, will work hard in the following course. I want you to consider this as an actual course at a school, and so you must do your best! Because you joined this course, I expect you to complete all the work.
At Hogwarts, their marking system is quite simple:
O - Outstanding
E - Exceeds Expectations
A - Acceptable
P - Poor
D - Dreadful
T - Troll
I will be using this Assessment that I have made for the class:
I may get you to write out a small essay (a few paragraphs) and so, there will be a different rubric for how I will mark them for each assignment I give you.
Be sure that you complete all the assignments!
